's unblooechbl. however, my unsolicited advice. >> good, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate abou

a year and move the detainees to the states. but it was pelosi and harry reid who said you can't use any federal funds to move guantanamo detainees to the united states and you can't use funds to buy or rehab a facility in the united states. jamie: why acquire it? >> there is overcrowding in some federal facilities. this is a well-built relatively new facility. it's been sitting dormant. i take them at their word that they want to utilize it to ease overcrowding and to bring jobs to the area. but the scepticism that some have is that the obama administration will make an end run around federal law, democrats and republicans, and try to close gitmo on the chief. jamie: there is so much overcrowding of the state prisons that the governor is releasing some prisoners locally that should potentially be behind bars, residents of illinois may argue. why not leave that opportunity or even assist the state government in acquiring it -- and there is no mention of that at this point -- may i confirm with you and take it for themselves, the feds. >> great question. one that i hope members of the med

. it gets to the senate and you have harry reid and nancy pelosi out there that want to do nothing but tax. guest: thanks so much for your call. there is a real wide range of ideology out there with the youth vote. many other young people would agree with him. we really need to push back against the status quo because the diversity of youth is not just the millennial. s. 40% of young people 18-29 years old will not have any college experience. we assume that all young people are college students, we are discounting the voice of a lot of young people. there are young people who have voices to bring to the table. this is a situation that the republican party is facing which is how to bring young people who are inclined to agree with them into a place where the republican party can have a long-term future with the young people who think a lot like them. seeing interesting things in 2012 in the ways in which the republican party is reaching out to young people. maybe the republican party needs to think more deeply about what they will do in the future. host: what do you make of the youth vote
